Sample text

These controls allow you to adjust the shadow, mid, and highlight areas independently without affecting the other areas of the image. This lets you lighten or darken selected areas of your images without loosing detail. From the histogram you can determine the image’s darkest shadow and brightest highlights; called the black point and white point. In fact, it’s the range between these two points that defines the tonal range or contrast of the image. If the image is low contrast, you can also tell if it’s low-key or highkey from the histogram.

Unwanted camera movement when the shutter is open is one of the major causes of unsharp photographs. You can reduce this problem in bright light and when using flash simply by holding the camera steady and depressing the shutter button smoothly. At slow shutter speeds, such as those you get in dim light, particularly with a long focal length lens or a lens zoomed in to enlarge a subject, you need a camera support. SUPPORTING THE CAMERA As you zoom the lens in on a subject, you increase the focal length of the lens.

The horizontal axis represents the range of brightness from 0 (shadows) on the left to 255 (highlights) on the right. Think of it as a line with 256 spaces on which to stack pixels of the same brightness. Since these are the only values that can be captured by the camera, the horizontal line also represents the camera’s maximum potential dynamic range. The vertical axis represents the number of pixels that have each of the 256 brightness values. The higher the line coming up from the horizontal axis, the more pixels there are at that level of brightness.
